Good info, Eric. AFAIK, you cannot EV and wildcard...Just something to 
consider. I'm not a fan of wildcards anyway, but a few subject alt names can be 
handy. Plan ahead!

these days there are essentially two types of SSL cert, DV and EV

DV = domain validated. anyone can get one. this is the same idea for the $9 SSL 
certs and free letsencrypt. you only need to prove you control the 
domain/server it's issued for.

EV = extended validation, you need to prove your corporate identity. should 
cost around $85/year.

EV will result in the big green banner with company name in most modern web

so its not something id have to deal with with little to no knowlege. plus I 
dont understand this 90 day thing

Subject: [AFMUG] ssl certs

Our current cert for our billing server (powercode) is about to expire. For 
some time web browsers have been throwing up the insecure flag, probably needed 
to update it.

What does a guy need in a certificate these days? godaddy is where we have it 
from, they have all kinds of options like green bar guarantee cert, etc.

I have thought about getting one thats good for more than one page, just to get 
rid of the annoying security screen on our managment port and mobile. but the 
wildcard cert seems more pricey than id prefer for something thats just 
convienient rather than needed
